Product Description

After spending much of 2006 on the road with The Hold Steady, Cursive, and Constantines, The Cops now give you their razor-sharpened second full-length. Dynamiting the walls of classic rock and rebuilding on the crumbling foundations, they've constructed a set filled with scratching, twitching, aching, unholy rock music that still manages to be both familiar and crucially entertaining. Eleven dark roughhousing manifestos.


The Cops' staccato stop-and-go six string rhythms couple with abusive drumming to create a surprisingly danceable set. --Spin.com

Format: Audio CD
In the past few years, we've seen a lot of music inspired by, derived from, or simply baldly aping British 1980's post-punk. These bands can be identified simply by the presence of the adjective "angular," which is rock-crit shorthand for the jagged guitar attack they all seem to share, clipped electric bursts over a precise rhythm section. Some do it gleefully -- I particularly liked Franz Ferdinand's first album, and The Young Knives' most recent album (Superabundance) -- and some do it stultifyingly, trapped in a copy of a thirty-year old groove with no room to move.

The Cops do it well. They're somewhere in between classic punk and post-punk -- they're probably a bit more rhythmic than orthodox punk, and a hell of a lot more violent than most post-punk. They sound older than their years. They're from the Pacific Northwest, a longtime bastion of rock and roll, and their latest album rocks, by turns sinister, sneering, knowing, and angry. It's a great guitar record, sharp as a tack, with no sugary concessions, no synths in sight, and no letup. Fun as hell.
